From Our Own Correspondent. 

Vancouver, .June 12. — At today's 
meeting of the Presbyterian Assembly 
the invitation from Victoria to hold a 
concluding session in that city was oou-i 
sidcred. It was decided that as the 
commissions had been delegated to bold 
their sessions in Vancouver, this could 
nut lie done, but they would accept the* 
invitations as members of the assembly 4 
and hold a meeting Wednesday evening' 
in Victoria, where addresses could ho 
delivered. An invitation to visit .New) 
Westminster was answered in the same 

The question of the difference between 
Dr. Wilkie and oilier missionaries in In- 
dia was taken up. It was explained' 
thai Dr. Wilkie was retired from the 
lield hv the committee owing to his not 
being able to work with the other niis-i 
sioiiaries. Numerous petitions had come* 
from Ontario asking that the matter be J 
re-opened. The memorials were "Srend.l 
They recited the great work Dr. Wilkie! 
bad done, and his good character as aJ 
missionary and it man. Many tfivlnesj 
spoke, stating thai Dr. Wilkie hud becnl 
done a great wrong. It was Anally de- 
cided to have a revising committee re-; 
open the case. 

Ail the session last evening in eon-' 
neetion with the request for $100,000 
for foreign missions, Dr. Falconer said' 
that there should bo no conflict between) 
home and foreign missions. He spoke] 
of the three foreign missions undertaken 
by the church, lie referred to the esi 
tablisbment of the South Sea Island] 
mission fw years ago, when Dr. Joint/ 
Ueddie was sent there, and the es_tablishi 
mem of tlic Trinidnd mission 30 years 
ago. He said in Trinidad they had 1,- 
(KHl members of their church and 7,<H"> 
children attended. One church was self- 
sustaining. They paid the minister $1^ 
."(H) anil each member contributed $~> 
it year, which was better than many 
churches lit home. He also referred to 
the Korean mission. 

During Wednesday and yesterday 
morning the Presbyterian General As-i 
sembly considered the reports of cob 
leges. Mr. John McTntyre , presented 1 
the report of Queen's college. The re- 
port »n Knox college was presented bjl 
the Rev. A. M logillvrny, and of Mani J 
toba college by Professor Bryce. 

A long argument took place over the. 
proposal to make Queen's college unde J 
uominutionuj, so that the college could 
claim the goverumejit grunt. The op- 
position to the movement was headed 
by the Hon. J. Charlton. The whole! 
matter was finally referred to a largo 
and representative committee, which, 
will report on Friday. The same coin-' 
mit tee will report on the proposal of MrJ 
Charlton to consolidate the live Presby- 
terian colleges uio two. Montreal.! 
Knox and Queen's being combined, 
which was contained In the following 

"This General Assembly recognizes) 
the fact that the number of theological 1 
schools in connection with the Presby- 
terian church ill Canada is in excess ofj 
its requirements, and believes (hat tho 
endowment and equipment of those, 
schools is insufficient for the purpose ofi

The funeral neenrrnd at 1:24! a.m. The 
strictest privacy was lunintaiiied in or- 
der to avoid any hostile demonstrations. 
Two cotllns were brought in by ser- 
vants and were curried up to the room, 
where the bodies of the late King an I] 
Queen were lying. The eonviv were 
.then put in the coliiiis and the latter 
,were placed in a lie-lt'se, whic:i was lmr-j 
rieclly driven to llle old ci nieteiy, | 
where the other members of the Oh- 1

Ition to the attendants, only two pries | 
were present at the funeral. The Met- 
ropolitan of Belgrade was absent. The| 

i whole ceremony la-ted only a few 
initiates. The body of the lute Premier 
Markovitch will be buried with military 

! honors. 

| Col. Nntimavics, who was killed while 
forcing an entrance Into the palace with 
| il vnaniite, is described in the olllcial no- 
liee of his death as "dying on the field 
nf honor for his fatherland." 

It is now confirmed that only Query 
iDragn's two brothers wore killed. Her 
sisters were taken to Panes-ova by some 
of the conspirators. 

In the course of an interview today, 
Premier A va koinovioli said: "We min-

A despatch to the Lokale Anzrciger 
from Ilelgrade says the provisional gov-t 
eminent of Servia is bringing troops, 
there from the country. 

Belgrade, June 12.— The following^ 

tl lileial list of the killed: King 

Alexander. Queen Driiga, the Queen's 
two lirolliers. Premier Mtrrkovitch, the 
Minister of War. two aides-de-camp, and 
two other officers. 

The time of the assassination is given 
nllleially as 2 a. in. It is expected that 
the Servian parliament will confirm the 
proclama'inn by tin: army id' Prince 
Peter Kariigeor'gevitch as King of Ser- 
via. The newspapers forecast a better 
lutiire for Servia, and toe new state of 
things is heartily welcomed by the mas- 
ses. Nothing definite has been decided 
regarding the burial of the dead. 

The new ministry tonicrht published 
the following statement: ' Certain dif- 
ferences which arose at court have led 
to the intervention of the army, and a 
conflict in which the King and Queen' 
lost their lives. With a view of mnin J 
tabling pence and order in the country, 
at the present moment difficult and fate j

tical parties have hastened to come to 
an understanding and form a provisional 
government, in order to re-establish the! 
constitution existing before March 28,

Prince liodijar added: "The youthful 
sovereign was the victim of the unmerit- 
ed unpopularity of Ids consort, lie could 
not resist her. His culpable weakness: 
destroyed him. Moreover, who so draws 
the sword shall perish lev the sword. - ' 
My family lias been tried to the ut- 
most. My grandfather was assassinat- 
ed, and 17 of my relatives have been 
executed without trial. while others 
were tortured. Such crimes must bo 
expiated sooner or later. 

Geneva, June 12.— Prince Karageorge- 
vitch declares himself innocent of any 
knowledge of the tragedy in Belgrade. 
He said that through his grandfather, 
lie had undoubtedly the best right to the 
Servian throne, and intended taking it 
if possible for the sake of his sou, but 
he expected to meet with great difficul- 
ties, and hoped for assistance from 
Austria. From other sources, it is learn- 
ed that the Prince will leave secretly on 
Friday morning for Vienna, whence ho 
will proceed to Ilelgrade. Humors have 
been current here for three days of ex- 
pected trouble in Servia, and the Prince 
lias been receiving an enormous quan- 
tity of telegrams lor a week past, many. 
I of them from the frontier of Servia. 
| The Prince is a widower, 53 years of 
| age, and appears older. He is of med- 
ium height and build, and his face, dis- 
tinguished by a long military moustache, 
;is rather fierce. He has three children, 
' George, bis heir, 1)1 years old; Alexand- 
er, II years old, and Helene, aged 19 
years. He lives in an extremely simple 
manlier, and occupies a whole house, 
an unusual thing in Geneva, iu the Hue 
De I. a Bellottc. 

1 Russian money was undoubtedly used 
in tic revolution, which, according to 
general belief, was planned here. It is 
, recalled that when the Austrian Empress! 
; was murdered by the anarchist LucUeni 
, in this city iu ISKS, Prince Kn rageorgiH 
j viteh openly applauded the deed. He is. 

extremely popular here with all classes,, 
1 and is described as unassuming, sensible,; 
laud strictly honest in all private and' 
I public transactions, lie is still considi 
ered to be a member of the Montenegrin 1 
royal family, into which he married. 

Brussels, June 12.— The Petit Bleu, 
asserts that the Obrenovitch dynasty id 
not extinct. King Milan left a second 
son by a Madame Cristies whom h« 
legitimatized, and who will dispute 
Prince Karitgeorgevitch's right to tliej 
Servian throne.

Vienna, June 12. — The following semi J 
ollicial statements of the Austrian gov- 
ernment is published tonight; Ausiro- 
Miingarian policy preserves complete 
neutrality as to events in Servia, and 
will only abandon this standpoint in tho 
event, which at present is not to be as- 
sumed, of being forced to do so through 
the imminent jeopardizing of our inter- 
ests, in conformity with that principle,' 
of our policy by which we desire to pro- 
mote, with all our strength, the pros-- 
porous development of Servia, we should 
regard the reversion of the Servians to' 
old Knrageorgevitch's dynasty as quite 
natural, and we would approve it under] 
the present circumstances, as this step 
offers the' most promising solution for the'

From Our Own Correspondent. 

Vancouver, June 12.— Counsel for the 
C. li. It. E. and the C. I'. It. at tho 
labor commission, both stated this after- 
noon that the strike was settled. Tho 
commission, however, is still taking evi- 
dence. A number of ex-exployees have 
already returned to work, and the strik- 
ing 'longshoremen are back uu the 

Air. Marpole gave evidence before the 
commission today that there was no 
Mack list supplied to otuer railioadsj 
That a man's clearance as to cause ulj 
leaving the employment of the company 
meant just what was said on the clear- 
ance, and the words were not intended' 
to convey some other meaning. IU- 
stated that in February be had sent his 
chief clerk to Seattle tu find out wlmtj 
wages were heiny paid there, and as a. 
result raised the clerks' wages. 

J. McCreery gave evidence that tho 
overtime of the treight clerks was made 
Up for by their coming down late next) 
day, and by their having their salary 
increased to make up for it. 

Mr. Ureer, general freight agent, in 
freight business for 1!) years, sain iu 
was not the practice on any road to 
pay freight clerks overtime, and Pugetj 
JSound' freight clerks worked an hour 
longer each day were paid the same, and 
got no overtime. Other unimportant) 
witnesses were called. 

Prominent strikers said tonight that; 
the strike is practically over. Some of 
the men will be taken back after tliO 
1'lhid, and the rest as opportunity offers, 
'the C. 1'. It. and U. B. U. E. have 
agreed to terms, but are only waiting; 
to notify the outside union sympathiz- 
ers and outside U. B. It. E. unions o& 
tiieir action. The men resign from the 
('. B. It. E. and go buck as individuals. 

The employers of labor have organized 
in Vancouver. i hey have issued an 
olllcial statement, in which it is said) 
that labor has hitherto dealt only witll 
Individuals or employers, and it is rca j 
sonable to believe that the meeting of) 
two thoroughly organized bodies repre- 
senting labor and the investors will nd-) 
just in a fair and amicable manner unyl 
differences of opinion which may arise. 
The association says that the organiza- 
tion will be tiie means of avoiding; dis- 
putes leading up to strikes.

Mr Chris, Foley gave evidence be- 
fore the commission yesterday. He 
said, in speaking of the responsibility! 
ot governments, that the Bank of MoiH

marry until they received a certa.U sal- 
ary. ' He thought this state of affairs! 
should not be. That the government), 
should interfere. In referring to the' 
repudiation of contracts, hi' said thai) 
when a union's existence was threatened 1 
they had a right to repudiate contracts.) 
die' cited cases in history where the) 
'British government repudiated interna- 
tional agreements. He said that during! 
a strike in Hosslaud foreign police were) 
imported lo intimidate strikers, and at- 
another time foreign newspaper men tot 
'blacken the strikers' characters. lid 
thought if this thing could be, t'naU 
Canadian labor men should have a right, 
to join international unions. He said' 
'that in the abstract he was opposed to 
unions, as they helped the strong at the 1

Smart whicli said that there had been 
no recent communication with the go h 
commissioner regarding the Treadgold 
concessions, excepting upon the decision 
of the gold commissioner regarding rep- 
resentation on claims owned by Tread- 
gold. It was claimed that under the 
grant the claims held by Treadgold, ex- 
cept from payment fees and represen- 
tation work and lees on any claims held 
by him, must he paid in accordance with 
the regulations. The gold commissioner 
misconstrued the directions given linn 
some time ago and by mistake refuudeu 
the money. To set the matter right, a 
telegram was sent him on June 5, that 
the department had deducted the fees 
and representation must be paid in con-

asking him to obtain the money and 
credit the same as when it was first paid

New York Workers to Do Away 
With Indisciiminate 

New York, June 12.— A statement was 
made public today by a committee ot 
the building contractors from District 
Assembly No. 253, of the Knights of 
tvubor, relative to the building trades 
situation and the attitude which the 
Knights of Labor has assumed. The 
Statement favors the master builders' 
manifesto to do away with indiscrimin- 
ate, strikes called by walking delegates 
and submit grievances to arbitration. 
The walking delegate is to be uaed ouiy 
to see that the agreement is honestly 
lived up to by the men, collect dues and 
give relief to sick or distressed ruem- 
ibors. The committee has communicated 
with President Eidlitz, of the Building 
Trades Employers' Association, asking 
that a proponed plan of settlement be 
submitted. In conclusion the .statement 
nays: We are prepared to go before the 
Builders' Association or the district at- 
torney and testify under oath as to our 
membership with fair public declara- 
tion that the principle of our organiza- 
tion is to avoid strikes under any and all 
■circumstances and to keep our members 
employed at honest occupations instead 
of walking the streets as they are at 
present with their families in want. 
These are some of the principles that 
our organization enunciates, and with 
these aims ami objects in view we feel 
sure we will get the support of all fair- 
minded master builders and contractor 
find honest men of toil in the building 
industries." j

His life has been tilled with dare-devil

And immediate Danger 

A Soft, mellow flavored Whiskey produced by age anl high quality. 

St. Louis, June 12.— That the crisis 
of the Hood situation 1ms passed, so far 
as this city is concerned, \va« generally 
accepted as a fact by the citizens of East 
St. Louis tonight. Boat crews which 
yesterday Ktraincd their energies to the 
point of exhaustion in rescuing the pris- 
oners of the flood, today occupied them- 
selves in saving property and in bring- 
ing to higher ground belated refugees 
who previously had not believed them- 
selves in immediate danger. Since the 
disastrous break in the Illinois Central 
levee the flood has made no dangerous 
inroads; although a portion of the Bal- 
timore & Ohio embankment gave "way 
last night, nnd the flood area- "was fur- 
ther increased by seepage today. 

Tonight water continues to seep 
through Broadway in four places, flood- 
ing tho lowlands between that thorough- 
fare and Missouri avenue, the street 
north, by from 2 to G feet of water. This 
sectien of the flood extends between the streets for miles, interrupted occa- 
sior.sxllj by embankments. iSome water 
hUH found its way into Missouri avenue 
and St. Louis avenue. ' reryple in this 
district, however, have not been com- 
pelled to leave their homes.

landed at the outer docks, bofore 'the 
Steamer left for TiieouiH early this morn- 
ing. The Pleiades hail no passengers. 

News was brought by the Pleiades 
thai considerable sensation has been 
caused at Tokio and throughout Japan 
,by tin- resignation of Mr. Tsukahara, 
president of the Umga Dock Company, 
in consequence of the failure -of his com- 
pany to turn out United .States gun- 
.bonts for the Philippine government in 
accordance with specifications. The 
boats made (two) have been rejected by 
Governor Tuft, and the remaining three 
arc said to be equally inadequate. The 
only fault .jiublicly announced is that 
the boats draw one foot more than the 
specifications called for. with h would 
make them utterly unlit for the coast 
work for which they are required. But 
it is crodibJy num. rod that the defects 
are much more general. It is said thai 
iGovemor Taft lias had an expert over 
here investigating the matter, and that 
he has discovered a disgraceful slate ot 
scamped work, covered up by means of 
.bribery to those entrusted with passing 
the work. As one or these was a Unit- 
ed States inspector, his .connection with 
the scandal lias been receiving, it s 
said, special attention with results that 
wil' .prove a bomb-shell. Every effort 
is being -made he-re to cover iiji the al- 
leged ugly work, especially as this was 
Japan's debut in the lield of naval con- 
struction .for foreign powers; but it !-< 
probable that the whole story will come 
ont through Governor Tuft's emissary, 
who appears in connection with local 
American residents to have done some 
very clever detective work. 

It is -understood that the gunboats 
have mot been paid fur, and that Gov- 
ernor Taft will decline to accept them 
until they comply in all respect.- with the 
requirements of the specifications.

Not an order was passed, but from

some curious process this lust for chase

by the following noto: 

Editor Colonist:— 

Dear Sir, —I enclose an interesting 
article on the "Chinese question," from 
a South African paper. Please publish 
in "Sunday Colonist," or if you do not 
wish to use it, please return. 

A stump was enclosed for the re.un: 
of the precious document. If this ncal-

office lie will receive his stamp, ahio a 
copy «( tlie Colonist of soma six weeks

is printed in full. Such incidents add 
joy and encouragement to the editorial

constituents read foreign newspapers in

the more they spend. They undertake ' are left, plus the credit of the province?

the federal government can expend the . alienation of any specific land on which 
money much more judiciously and pru- | it is secured. It may be difficult, tout 
dently. It is well known that at tho ' it. should not by any means be tuipos- 
time of confederation all thi.s was con- sible to fiuanco British Columbia upon 
sidered, and it was stated that if addi- the vast area of undeveloped land of 
tional amounts were required by way of which the province is the sole owner, 
preserving the proper economy that 
should prevail, the provinces were given 
the right or taxation, but many prov- 
inces bad large sources of wealth which, 
if economized, enabled them to spend 
a very large' sum, larger in some cases 
than were contemplated at confedera- 
tion. They shared in tho general pros- 
perity that orose. Take the honorable 
gentleman's own province. Is not his 
own province today very much richer 
than it was at the time it como into 
confederation in 1871? It has mines of 
gold, silver and coal— enormous areas of 
land that are of immense value." What 
the honorable gentleman entirely over- 
looks is the fact that so far as British 
Columbia is concerned the Dominion 
government does not distribute tho rev-

tli-fs political commotion in British Co- 
lumbia ? How many of Us can tell 
what arc the questions, who are the 
leaders, or what are the forces that 
have brought ulxnit the crisis? What- 
ever i.~ going on in the Pacific province 
might almost, so far as <\ur interest is 
concerned, be going on in another 
planet." Ilis subsequent remarks show 
that he means to illustrate that British 
Columbia is neither of particular in- 
terest nor of particular importance to 
Eastern Canada; and that therefore 
Confederation is not of particular im- 
portance; and that, therefore, by ana- 
logy, the idea of Imperial Federation is; 
absurd. There are few men who hnve( 
the audacity to erect parochialism into 
il political creed. Most of us fight 
parochialism, as a disease to which we 
are all more or less subject, a habit of 
mind, making against everything that en- 
larges the sympathies and broadens the 
activities, and makes life worth the liv- 
ing, not certainly a category of existence 
into which men are obliged and should 
be glad to fall. Men are not coral in- 
sects whose consciousness is limited to 
the cell in which ttiey ere. lose them- 
selves, who spend their lives in build- 
ing their own tomb, knowing nothing of 
the larger structure of which that coll 
is a part. They look before and after. 
They see in the far past tho foundations 
of the society in which they live. For 
the future, they have a dim perception 
of the ends for which they live, and the 
more they gild their horizon with what 
the future has in store, the more iutel-i

Iiritish Columbia, if the great surplus 
revenue derived from this province by 
the Dominion government was returned 
to it in any way, direct or indirect. The 
question of who should spend the money 
is nut the question at issue, but the 
question on whom it should he spent, 
the people who contribute it, or some- 
body else. The government of British 
Columbia has advocated a larger con- 
tribution to the provincial treasury, and 
there is reason in that contention, as we 
shall presently show. Hut there is art- 
other way of accomplishing the same 
result which would satisfy the people of 
British Columbia, if the Dominion gov- 
ernment would, with its colossal, and 
for long years augmenting British Co- 
lumbia surplus would frankly undertake 
a policy of Western development, in- 
stead of throwing our money into East- 
ern canals, railways, and harbors, and 
if it would give to Western production 
a reciprocal protection to that bearing 
upon Western consumption, then not 
merely would tho treasury not be in- 
jured, but the provincial government 
would bo able from its own resources 
to carry its heavy burdens with greater 
ease. We admit that Mr. Scott's premise 
that it matters not who spends tho 
money is correct, but it matters dn 

We do not suppose that any of our 
readers could guess the financial mag- tra< 
nate who is the author of the following «je 
maxim: "The tendency to take on more 
than can be carried through stress of 
weather, is among the dangerous factors 
that undermine prosperity." It was Mr. 
A. E. Ames of Toronto, whose firm 
lately failed, holding between- seven and 

ten millions of dollars worth of Specu- ' ^nd^^^'S^^empw'ta? 
lative securities, who said that. Amass- tatlou is sufficient to cause a bending to-

A remarkable ease of the substitution 
of hypnotism for chloroform, is reported 
from London by the Mail and Empire. 
A woman who had to hare her leg am- 
putated, but who could not, without 
danger, take chloroform, herself (sug- 
gested hypnotism. After two or three 
days practice, she was put into a hyp- 
notic trance, and the operation success- 
fully performed. She laughed and chat- 
ted and drank a glass of wiue while 
the operation was taking place, but was 
utterly unconscious that her leg was 
being severed from her body. All the 
surgeons, including the one who hyp- 
notized the patient, —ere very doubtful 
about the experiment, and had chloro- 
form ready, but it was completely suc- 
cessful. It is said to be the case 
in England in which a serious operation

They have had a debate on the sub- 
ject of better terms being granted the 
provinces of the Dominion in the Sen- 
ate. It was introduced by Senator 
Macdonald, who argued the question in 
a general, rather than from a strictly 
British Columbia point of view. Tlie 
significant feature of the debate was 
the reply made by the Hon. Mr. Scott, 
which presumably represented the atti- 
tude of the government on the ques- 
tion. His speech was one long scolding 
of the provinces for extravagance and 
maladministration of revenue and re- 
sources. Ho showed himself not mere- 
ly hostile to, but ignorant of, and np- 
fuirently incapable of appreciating the 
attitude of British Columbia on tho 
question of better terms. He begnn his 
speech by observing that "The fallacy 
of the honorable gentleman's observa- 
tions must be apparent when you como 
to recollect that he assumes that tho 
expenditure mode by the Dominion is 
not for the benefit of the provinces. It 
simply becomes a question who should 
spend the money — who can meet the re- 
quirements of the' various sections of 
the Dominion, the federal or provincial 

dation of civilized society. On the 'oth- 
er hand, the sources of revenue the 
province possesses are limited in the 
extreme. Nearly every provincial tax 
bears more or less hardly upon labor 
and production. It is fiscally inevit- 
able. The different interests affected by 
those tuxes are in revolt against them 
all the time. Tli..-..' see so (dearly where 
and in what manlier those taxes dimin- 
ish their efllciency, and lay burdens upon 
their bucks in developing a new, wild, 
and difficult country. It is only a few 
who pause to consider that the prov- 
ince has a henvy burden of administra- 
tion to carry for which means must 
somehow be provided. Mr. Scott finally 
drew attention to the enormous re- 
sources possessed by the land owning 
provinces. Doubtless, but how arc those 
to be utilized? These lands, before theyt 
are settled and worked, hnve simply n 
speculative value. In what way are we 
to realize upon that speculative value? 
We have allowed railway companies to 
finance their roads, through the speculn-l 
tive value of the lands through which 
they run, but no attempt has ever been 
made to relieve the treasury and finance 
roads, bridges, trails, schools, and courts 
through the speculative value of the 
laud on which they tire located, and to 
tho needs of whose scanty population 
they minister. We believe it can (be 
done, nnd eventually we believe it will 
have to be done. For instance, a rail- 
road is built upon bonds secured upon

Bush Fires.— (Destructive bush fires 
are raging in the neighboring state of 
Washington and much property damage 
is resulting in consequence. In the

tires have broken out. This is somewhat

in the majority of instances the tires 
not occurring until August.

the Settlers' Association. 

Teachers' Salaries.— The action of the 
Board of School Trustees in suspending 
the ruh providing that teachers' sal- 
aries be .paid in L0 monthly installments, 
has raised a very important point. Trus- 
tee Dr. Lewis Hall points out that in 
view of the fact that provision was 
made in the estimates for the operation 
of this regulation, the continuation of 
the system of paying in VI monthly in- 
stallments will knock off .-sSOO from the 
commencement of the school year to the 
cud of the calendar year. The deficiency 
will likely he made in the sum put in the 
estimates for probable salary increases, 
which will make quite a difference in 
the chances of the teachers for advances 
this year.

pany applied to the council for an ex

refused. It is stipulated that Ifie bridge 
must be open for trallic in October 
next; but in view of the delays which 
hnve occurred it is not supposed that

Tokio.'May 27.— According to advices 
received from Tokio by the steamer 
Pleiades in associated press letters, press, 
reports Of the proceedings in the Diet 
now sit tincr, show that the government 
has some difficulty in suppressing the re-

the members in regard to Russia's ac-

interpellations have been introduced re- 
garding the government's policy of in- 
action, and the serviceability of the 
Anglo- Japanese alliance, but these have 
been sidetracked. The greatest interest 
is expressed in the rumored occupation 
by purchase, on the part of Russians, 
of sites on the Yalu, commanding the 
Korean frontier. The main question oC 
Russian demands is awaiting the arri- 
val of '.U. Lessar, ex-Russian minister, 
to Pekin, from St. Petersburg, lie ia 
reported to have arrived at VUdivostoek,, 
and is expected to go to Pekin on Thurs- 
day. General Kuropatkin, Russian min- 
ister of war, is expected in Tokio next, 
week and his arrival in the Par Past 
is believed to have some connection, 
with the final disposal of the question. 

The Chinese riots in Kwangsi prov- 
ince have developed in violence, and the 
correspondent of the Asalii today ire- 
ports that the French consul at Tonking 
has represented to the governor of the 
province, and also to the Pekin govern- 
ment, that, unless the insurgents are 
suppressed, French troops will be sent: 
across the frontier to quell the distur- 
bance. Bv some Japanese papers tins 
has been anticipated as a demonstration 
vis-a-vis the Mauchurittu Question. The 
Jiji was advised from Pekin on May 
22 that the Kwangsi rebels have con- 
nected with those in Yurraa and T/.e- 
chuan, and occupied Linan in Yunnan, 
displaying the utmost truculence. 

The Asahi's -Tientsin correspondent, 
under date of May 21. says that Russia 
hus assembled over 7. (MX) troops a; 
l.iaovan, including artillery, infantry, 
and cavalry, with a view to carry 
out manoeuvres on a large scale in that 
quarter in a few days. It is reported 
that Russian military manoeuvres will 
also take place in Harbin shortly. This 
is thought to be a demonstration vis-a- 
vis the Manchuriuu question. 

The same correspondent, states that 
Russia contemplates the establishment, 
of a police station at Moukden, under 
the pretence of guarding miners belong- 
ing to the colliery near the town. 

It is stated in a Pekin despatch to 
the Jiji that the Ohinesa otllcials com- 
missioned to take over the Yinkow ad- 
ministration board have been opposed by 
the Russians, who nave declare.', to tno 
commissioners that Russia cannot return 
Yinkow to China unless the guarantino 
rights remain in Russia's hands. The 
despatch adds that this is designed by 
Russia to monopolize the trade of Yin

the following touching lines during in- 
tervals in shedding tears on the bier—

Malta-Vita makes the E-arly BreaRfast 
the best meal of the day. 

Canada's prosperity is due largely to two classes of her people — her 
mechanics and her farmers, and there is nothing too good in the way of 
food for either of them. 

.The old-fashioned idea that the skilled mechanic, because he labors 
with his muscles as well as his brain, requires a heavy food has been pretty 
well exploded. The mechanic, himself, has found out that Malta- Vita, 
the perfect food, is far more nutritious and digestible than meat, potatoes 
or baker's bread. It is made from the whole wheat and possesses all its 
nutritive qualities in the most digestible form. Malta^Vita is the ideal 
food for a hastily prepared meal for it is cooked ready for immediate use. 
Served, hot or coldy with cream, milk or fruit it is simply delicious.

The question of not being able to pro- 
cure efficient senior lacrosse players has 
nol only been bothering British Columbia 
this year, hul Montreal as well. TUe gen- 
t-ial cry there .from lovers of the national 
game has been the same as here, where 
are Cie senior I cams to be recruited from? 
The only way this tpiestlon can lie answer- 
ed Is to encourage the Juniors and ln'er-

No attempt has been made yd by the 
seniors to get tliein together, and organize 
them, us fucy promised at the beginning 
of the season. 

The situation Is serious. T.aerosve is too 
line a game to he neglected. The young 
idea Should lb" encouraged, and the encour- 
ii'g-einenl should come from the senior 
ii-lub. who will draft them later on Into 
their teams. The Montreal Herald says

Mr. Harry .1. Trllhey, of the Shamrocks, 
said that ae thoroughly realized the seri- 
ousness of the situation. He could give 
no explanation of the dearth of Interest 
unless It was that the hoys had no grounds 
to practice on. He knew that tile Sham- 
rccks would do every thing In their power 
to encourage the playing of lacrosse among 
tae younger members of the community. 
Hi could promise that any junior clubs 
who had not grounds for practice and 
matches as long as their days did not in- 
ti ri'ere wilh the regular practices ami 
nmt-ches of the Shamrocks themselves. He 
thought also that flic Shamrocks as a club 
o. as individuals might give financial aid 
Which would enable young clubs lo buy 
sticks and balls. 

-Mr. A'lSh Cameron, president of the 
iiontreal Lacrosse Club, spoke in the same 
strain. It might not be possible to do 
much in the way of lending the grounds, 
as the M. A. A. A. Held was busy every- 
day and evening with lawn tennis, erliket, 
association football or lacrosse. But he 
could promise financial assistance, and It

New lork. June 12. — There was a contin- 
uunoe today of tUe active buying of stocks 
which developed so suddenly yesterday 
morning and prices carried to a substan- 
tially higher level throughout the district 
on dealing of over a million shares. The 
market closed active and llnu at near the 
top leveJ, profit-taking on the considerable 
rise making an insignificant Impression 
upon prices. The demand showed signs o£ 
being satisfied at times during the day and 
there were lulls in the activity or the mar- 
ket with 'fractional recessions in prices. 
Rut no Important pressure to sell developed 
Evidently a considerable part of the de- 
mand came from the abort Interests. 'The 
demand and some buying from belated in- 
vestors was Insignificant of a feeling of 
commence that tUe turn in the market is 
something more thou temporary. Tue deal- 
ings in Reading were on an extraordinary 
scale and H was rushed up four points in 
the late dealings helping materially to sus- ! 
tale the late strength of the market. A ;

one right, (live a cross baby an occasion- 
al Tablet and see how quickly he will 
be transformed into a bright, smiling, 
cooing, happy child. He will sleep at 
night and tho mother will get. her rest 
too. You have a guarantee that Baby's 
Own Tablets contain not one particle 
of opiate or harmful drug. In all the 
minor ailments from birth up to ten or 
Bid. twelve years there is nothing to equal 
the Tablets. Mrs. W. B. Anderson, 
Goulais River, Out., says: "iMv little 
boy was very cross and fretful and we 
got 110 rest with him until we began us- 
ing Baby's Own Tablets.. Since then 
baby rests well and he is now a fat, 
healthy hoy."

druggist, or they will be sent by mail

I was. Before faking tho pills I suffer- 
ed from bronchitis at times, but it has 
never since troubled me. I can recom- 
mend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to any- 
one who suffers as 1 did." 

Dr. Williams' Pink Pilln restore heaith 
and strength by making new, rich 
blood, thus strengthening every organ in 
the body. They do not act merely upon 
the symptoms, as ordinary medicines do. 
but go directly to the root of the trouble. 
In this way they cure such diseases us 
liver und kidney troubles, rheumatism, 
paralysis. St. Vitus' dance, heart troub- 
les, sick headaches, anaemia, and the ir- 
regularities Hint make the lives of so 
many women one of constant misery. 
Do not be persuaded to take any sub- 
stitute; see that the full name "Dr. Wil- 
liams' Pink Pills for Palo People" is on 
the wrapper around every box. If in 
doubt, the pill* will be sent postpaid at 
50 cents a box or six boxes for $2.50, 
by addressing the Dr. Williams Medicine 
Co., Brockville, Out.

Kerrozone — The <hise of .'Mrs. 
U. Cross, of Wake- 
field, Out. 

"I was in pour health nearly all lust 
winter," writes Mrs. Cross. "My ap- 
petite was variable. I was weak and 
unfit for work. I suffered a good deal 
from nervous headache and palpitation 
of the heart. My digestion was gen- 
erally out of order. By spring time I 
had lost llesh and color, and had a bud 
cough. The doctor didn't help mo very 
much, so I decided to try Ferro/.one. 
It did me ever so much good in one 
week. I gained strength, looked und 
.felt a lot better. When I had used six 
"boxes of Ferrozono I weighed myself, 
and found a gain of fifteen pounds. 
Ferrozono rebuilt my constitution nnd 
made me a new woman. I consider 
iFerrozono worth its weight in gold to 
every weak woman. It cures quickly 
anil saves big doctor's bills." 

(M^JtS.) K, CROSS.- 

This is one case among many hun- 
dreds where Ferrozono lias restored 
ailing women. It is the best tonic to 
take at this time of the year, when Hie 
system is weakened after tlie hardships 
of a trying winter. Ferrozono puts new 
strength nnd -vitality into tlie blood. 
It cleanses the system of all impurities, 
improves the appetite, and aids diges- 
tion. Ferrozone builds up sinew and 
muscle, drives away sickness, nnd 
brings health anil happiness to all who 
■use it. 

Kvoryono needs medicine at this .par- 
ticular season. (Springtime is hardest 
on health, nnd the average constitution 
needs a stimulating tonic. Ferrozono 
ifills; every requirement of nn invigor- 
ating spring medicine', nnd costs Jess 
than one cent per dose. Buy a box of 
Forrozone today, and drive "away that 
tired, worn-out feeling. Price. 50 cents 
for three week's treatment. Six boxes 
for .$2.50 at cniggiste.

Ice Breaks on [Lebarge Carry- 
ing Jetty Built By 

Ajax Brought Machinery For 
the New C. P. R. Steamer 
Princess Beatrice. 

A Pawson despatch received yester- 
day morning by tile I'noilie Count SS. 
.(',,. of thi« city gives the welcome news 
that the Yukoti river its now u t en from 
While Horse ii> Dawson und iiavigu- 
tion has coiniuenced in earnest. Much 
freight lias been accumulating at White 
Horse, the sheds there being well tilled. 
Must of (he iceiu Luke Leburge, which 
was the only way Mill ice-blocked, wnsc 
broken nn Thursday nioruiug, ami it 
was expected that steamers would be 
able to leave White Horese that night 
lor Da-vson. lull it was not until yes- 
terday morning that the steuriiwheelers 
were' able to get away, and then the 
vessels had to 'tight their way through 
much float ire. ' The steamers were 
thronged, for om -1UO people inbound 
to Dawson ere awaiting the opening of 
navigation at White Morse. It in ex 
pected that there will lie heavy pastscli- 
ger list* on the downward steamers, lor 
the up-river sternwheelers were crowd- 
ed when tliey left Dawson, ami several 
are now about due ar White Horse. 

When the ire on Lake Leburge broke 
on Thursday ii caused considerable 
damage. tine hundred feet of the. big 
Canadian government jetty head at Le- 
burge has been washed away. The 
sands that accumulate, filled- the chan- 
nel the jolty attempted to make. An 
engineer <s:iys the jetty is pruetically a 
failure. The lirr-t mile and a halt' oust 
."jtlTfi.tXlO. 'Steamers have taken the old 
rhannel. It is doubtful if" the water will 
be deep enough for the entire season. 

The evening of Lake Leburge will be 
bailed with great satisfaction by the 
Dawson merchants, for the markets of 
the Klondike capital are more reduced 
than at any time since 1MIS. Staple 
lines are nearly all exhausted. A splen- 
did nentary on the thrift of t!i" 

people is shown in the fact that at mnnv 
distant creeks they are refusing to buy 
goods, the pliees being extreme. But- 
ter has been at SI per pound v\ hob-sab'. 
(Relief is expected next week. There is 
no suffering, but trade is stilled await- 
ing cheaper prices and new goods. 


The Kinross, Well Known Here, Is to

A company lias been formed to ac-

lor some years in carrying' coal between 
Ladysmith and other Island mines and

Queen City Returns from Trip to Quat- 
sino via Ports. 

Steamer Queen City returned from the 
West Coast yesterday afternoon, after 
a good passage to and from Quntsino. 
She carried among her passengers sev- 
eral sealing men, including Capt. Jacob- 
sen, who went to Barkley Sound to ship 
a crew for his three-masted schooner, 
which is expected to he ready by the 
2f>th to ship her supplies and sail north 
for Bohring sea. and Capt. II. Hughes, 
who went to Ueluelet to endeavor to 
.-hip a crew for the Otto, and Capt. Mc- 
,Lean. The Indians want lj!(5 a skin, but 
the majority of those schooners which 
went out for the hiirinu- cruise have 
their crews, having signed hunters for 
the entire season. The ClayoqUOt store 
is said to be paying $15 a skin to the 
I ndia ns. 

The passengers included 110 miners 
from Qnatwiuo Sound. The complete list 
was as follows-. Young, Kuyuier, I'', 
(ireen, (iilman, 20 miners, from Yroka; 
('apt. McLean, from Ahousaht; 'Hon. 
10. Dewduey, from Sidney; W. .1. Sut-

Abels from 'Ckiyoquot; R. Daykin, 

-loseph, from Carmnuah; Johnson and 
AYiggs, from San Juan; ('apt. Jacob-

from L'cluelet. 

The steamer will sail again for the 
('oa>t on Sunday night. 

Today at 1 o'clock the time for hand- 
ing in plans for the Carnegie library 
competition expires, and at that hour 
the city clerk will baud the same over to 
the committee of judges, made up of 
W. W. Northeott, John Adam and Wil- 
liam. Henderson. 

It is believed that at lenet six of the 
local architects are submitting (plans, as

A special despatch received from 
Dawson under date of Thursday, says: 
"A destructive tire this morning de- 
stroyed property valued at #--{,000, in- 
cluding a building and contents. The 
.lire originated in T. <>. Wilson's ware- 
house on the corner of Third and Queen 
streets, and none of the property lost 
was protected by insurance. 

The heaviest losses are the parties in- 
terested in what is known as the deal- 
ers' pool in egga, their loss being esti- 
mated at SjO.WO. Sawyer & Carroll 
owned of the eggs, the other 
owners being the North American 
Transportation & Trading Company, 
Shaw iV Morgan, Clark & Mercereau 


way Wilson, Thos. iSorby and Hooper McDonald Trading Company, Dominion 

Commercial Company, Deshris-uy und 
T. (i. Wilson. 

Wilson's individual loss amounts to 
$.1,000, consisting of the building in 
which the produce was stored and a 
quantitv of perishable merchandise. 

Other losses sustained consist of dam- 
age to hay, oranges and potatoes, owned 
bv the several concerns named, to the 
extent of from $100 to $300 each. 
The origin of the lire is unknown. 
The merchants of Dawson evidently 
expected navigation to open on Luke 
Leburge considerably sooner than lias 
developed, for as early as live weeks' 
ago prices, especially on perishable 
goods, which would naturally be rushed 1 
through first, took a decided tumble. 
Onions fell from IS cents to cents; hay, 
which had been firmly held at 13 cents, 
sold at 10 and as law as 9% cents a 1

It is anticipated that the judges will 
require at least one week in which to 
arrive at a decision in the important 
matter of awarding the laurel wreath 
for excellence. When that point shall 
have been decided, the next step to- 
wards the erection of the building will 
be the railing for tenders. Two weeks' 
notice will have to be given intending 
contractors, so at least another month 
will elapse until the library matter 
passes finally from the hands id" the 
City Council' to the builders responsible 
for the erection of the structure. The 
plans and specifications call for a build- 
ing estimated to cost not more than 
$45,000, upon the site chosen by the 
ratepayers, said cost to be estimated t >

He Doesn't Have to Serve Lobscouse and Dandyfunk Any More- 
Carries on His Work in Excellent Quarters— The Old-fash- 
ioned "Doctor" and Successor in the Ship's Kitchen. 

TII10SH days of mighty steamships 
— leviathans that duy by day 
g>ut<h the white sails of the old 
time commerce-carriers farther 
anil farther from the direct routes of 
trade- — have worked revolution in the 
lives of the men "who go down to tho 
sea in ships." To some those changes 
have worked a certain woe. There is the 
foremast hand who once "was weatherly 
Tviso aloft, knew how and •when to reef 
and furl, could Kteer the ipluugiufr packet 
into the froth of a Kale by the shiver of 
the foresail leech, and work wonderful 
devices -with a mariin *T>iko and a rope; 
and who now is a deck washer, a scrub- 
ber of .paint, and a 'booster of (passengers' 
luggage. On the other hand there is the 
pea cook, once the despised and derided 
"doctor" of the sailing shii>*. a man 
With two dishes which were worth while, 
one of which was "lotiseouse" and the 
other wasn't. Today the sea cook on the 
liner is a functionary, a man of mark, 
drawing a salary that would make an old 
timer greeu with envy, having satellites, 
attendants, and understrappers galore. 

The struggle of the old-time een cook 
with his limited larder, his unhandy sur- 
roundings, would have been ludicrous 
had they not been fraught with too deep 
a signitiennce to the hungry crew; this: 
made them pathetic. The cook is a regu- 
larly 'articled member' Of the crew on a I 

the "hot pie" reduced to uunourishtug 

Even'with smiling skies and everything 
going his way the sailing coot's life is 
by no means u merry one. His galley 
is on deck, often forward, just where n 
good .boarding sea can soak it, anil where 
he Igets the full fling! and semi of the 
rollers. 'How lie keeps XKits on the stove 
in :i jumping sea is a question which ho 
could mot answer himself, but he must 
manage it. "Perhaps the small size of his 
galley helps, for its space is usually not 
more' than sis feet by 12, and he can 
stand in the middle and reach almost j 
anything without jumping for it. Then 
again the restrictions are such that he 
is not apt to have his pots brimming 
over. On most sailing vessels the sea 
cool; is limited to two quarts of fresh 
water daily for each man, and with this 
In' is expected to produce a full quart of 
coffee, a pint and a half of tea, and a 
pint <>f pea soup. It will be seen that 
clever management is needed for tins 

On three days of the week he has to 
make duff of bread instead of jpea soup. 
The ingredients for this duff, or bread, 
arc a half pound of tlower per man, some 
fat boiled from the salt beef, generally 
known as "slush," and the aforesaid 

an extra bucket of water. The amount 
of water on a long voyage is necessarily 
limited, and the usual service does uot 
admit of '"lobscouse." 

Having the water then, Heaven sent, 
or otherwise, this is how "lobscouse" 
is made. Take the salt beef and \pork 
scraps remaining from (previous meals, 
cut into junks and heave into a pot. 
Smash up some bard tack with a belay- 
ing piu and heave iu about an equal 
quantity with the meat. An onion and 
some pepper, if obtainable, will add to 
the flavor. .Cover with water, let it sim- 
mer gently, and serve hot. 

"•Dandyfunk" is n sort of nautical gin- 
gerbread. You ;mt hard tack into a can 
van bag and pound it with a sail-maker's 
mallet until it is reduced to minute fra 
incuts. Mix to a paste with water, 
molasses, and carefully selected "slush." 
I'ui. iu a baking pan and bake until 
brown. A little piece of ginger of course 
adds to this delectable dish, and is avail- 
able if the steward is feeling good ua- 

"Dog's body" hardly merits so un- 
propitious name. It is really "dandy- 
ifuak" with the molasses left out 'and re- 
placed by the day's allowance of pea 
soap and some bits of tfine chopped pork. 
Onions must bo obtained, either by cajol- 
ery or treachery, added, and the whole 
baked and served hot. Sometimes the

may have to leave his Settles, no matter

"ila ndyfunk" and "dog's .body." "iLobs- 
couse" is, withal, a simple luxury, but it 
has its draw-backs for it can be made 
only after a heavy shower of rain or at 
such times as the' stewaril can be pre- 
vailed upon to be generous and serve out 


this dish from 

the remnants of preceding meals and, if 
the cook is feeling well, he puts it in 
the oven for them; if not, it has to wa't 
over till a more auspicious day. 

iSueh were the table luxuries served by 
the old time sea cook, and it must be 
confessed that he did as Well as he 

To Tone Up the System After the Trying Indoor Life of Winter- 
To Enrich and Purify tho Blood— To Revitalize the 
Nerves and to Gave Strength to the Body, 

Many mothers find themselves in a run-down condition in the spring-, and it is little 
wonder when you think of how they are usually confined to indoor life during the winter, 
and not infrequently have children or grown persons to nurse through long spells of 

Irritability, sleeplessness, nervousness, tired, languid feelings, headaches, back- 
aches, dizzy spells, discouragement and despondency are among the annoying symptoms. 
Later developments are nervous prostration, paralysis or some form of weakness or irregu- 
larities which bring endless troubles.

with nervous exhaustion and .1 weak,

very distressing. By means of this 
treatment my nerves have become

Because of its marvellous blood*building qualities and excellent revitalizing influence on

could, surprisingly -well under the circum- 
stance!*. iSucli at' one would be lost in 
amazement, however, on n modern liner. 
Serve "lobscoucse" on any one of tin? pas- 
senger ships ot the Morgan "mecger" and 
where would you be'.' Not one of these 
but serves a daily menu equalled only 
in the very best and most expensive ho- 
tels. Here is not one cook, but many, 
and the duties are divided so that, each 
may pursue his speciality. Take one o! 
the American line vessels, for instance, 
where American ivaget. are paid and 
things are done in American fashion. 
There is the chief coo':, earning $G0 a 
month, n second, who sets tf-10, and a 
third receiving $25. There is the French 
cook, a chef, drawing $50; a lirst vege- 
table cook, i?25; and two more at $17. 
There aro two scullery men who draw 
$1/7 each, and' nil this Imposing array is 
for the first cabin alone. 

For the second class there is fctiH an- 
other chief cook, drawing $37.50 a 
month; 11 second, who gets $25, and two 
more-receiving $17. When you come to 
the third class— the steerage as we used 
to call it before the biic improvements 
that were made in recent years, when 
"third class" on a boat like the "Cedrie" 
or "Celtic" means more than "cabin" did 
once on a time — there are still three 
ks, first, second and third, drawing 
$32.50, $20 and $17, according to their 
respective importance, The second and 
third class passengers have 110 French 
chef as yet, though with the improve- 
ments nod luxuries added year by year 
to the great ocean liners, it is quite jios- 
sible thait these will arrive in due season. 

.V similar service prevail*) on other 
first class liners, though it is worthy of 
note that -waste do not range as high, 
as a rule. The highest wages are in- 
variably paid uniler tlie American flag- 
on shipboard at all events. 

Among all this array of highly paid 
and highly skilled professionals the old 
time sea cook would no doubt be figur- 
atively, as well as literally, "at sea." 
Vet it is probable that not a single liner 
cook could properly prepare "dog's body" 
or "daiidvfunk." Instead, he has at his 
service ail the luxuries that modern lilu 
ashore, can command, The world is 
drawn upon for Ids supplies and such 
material as goes to garnish the larder 
of the finest hotels are at his beck and 
call. Deep in the cavernous hold of the 
great ship are a dozen storerooms, pack- 
ed, locked, and guarded, and from those 
he draws as occasion demands. From 
the refrigerating rooms, iced by special 
machinery run for that jHirpwso aloue, 
the ship's butchers bring meats and cut 
them to his taste. There is tho poultry 
and game room, tho fruit room, the but- 
ter and cream room, the vegetable room, 
all a part of his storehouse. In the 
latest modern ovens bakers bake bread 
and cake for him. A confectioner pre- 
pares dainties and serves ice. cream from 
the ice cream room, where it is kept 
frozen tho voyage through. And so it 

But if the old time cook wore amazed 
at all this he would he still more aston- 
ished at the liner's galleys. In the Phila- 
delphia or New York of the American 
line— iu all the big ships, 'for that mat- 
ter— flieec are placed low in the hull 
amidships where there is little to he 
feared from the motion of the sea. There 
is a galley for the first class, another for 
the second, and still another for the 
third. While in some ships the food for 
the crew comes from the third claeis 
galley, on others it. is cooked in a special 
galley where there is a first and second 
cook, especially for the crew. In all 
these every modern apjplianco is to be 
found, just as would he the case in the 
hotel ashore, and, indeed, the labors of 
the cook on a liner differ little from those 
in a city hotel Iwhere two or three 
thousand people are fed daily. The same 
appliances, the same supplies and the 
same results are all found there. The 
f.pace is rather more circumscribed than 
in a hotel, but it vastly exceeds that to 
which the old sailing vessel eooli is ac- 
customed. There is room enough to do 
the work without crowding, and that is 
all any cook may ask. 

The modern liner cook is no longer a 
sailor, die wouldn't, know a reef point 
from a belaying pin if the two lay side 
by side. lie is 110 longer required to 
bo able to "band, reef, mid steer" but he 
can broil and brew to a nicety, be can 
manage a gang of bakers, stewcrs, anil 
roasters, and he knows to the dot the 
ingredients of a thousand luxuries o£ the 
palate that one would expect only in 
king's houses. His scullions wash the 

dishes by machinery and clean tho sil- 
ver iu gangs. The crew of the ]in<>r eat 
the best of modern food, cooked witli 
skill, and the old allowance of two qaarts 
of water to & man has Jong since ceased 
to hamper the cook's output and test 
his ingenuity. Ho himself is hired iishore 

in tho same way! and from the same 
sources that a cook for a hotel would 
be hired, and he has his sjiecinl state- 
room and even his allowance of wine with 
meals. The sea cook's lines have surely 
fallen in pleasant places and his path is 
one of peace.

Bacteria That Spoils Milk and Others That Help to Make 
Batter and Cheese — Interesting Investigations to Be Un- 
takon This Summer at the Massachusetts Institute of 

HOW to keep milk sweet; for tho ,best 
longest possible period it* a prob- 
lem that has interested lioutse- 
■wrvcs on a uinnll ami dairymen 
mi ;i larjfe scale ever since milk became 
a household necessity. Only within very

any vi<silile hope, that a way may. J'e<-

this inconvenient phenomenon; the dairy- 
man no longer lilames tlie cow for pro- 
ducing a substance that will inevitably 
curdle hut curses a goodly number of 
bacteria that gens into the milk, after- 
ward ami sour it by the production of 
certain chemical changes. 

These bacteria are so numerous that 
they have not yet been completely inves- 
tigated, although the subject has been 
under careful investigation in many Cou- 

acterla for the butter maker, havo 
found means, to cultivate these particular 
dairyman's assistants in what are called 
".pure cultures," and these "pure cul- 
tures" arc now used in butter making 
in much the same fashion as prepared 
yeast, which is another result of 'bac- 
terial assistance, is used ill the bakery, 
use has developed during the last 
ars to such an extent that June 
butter, formerly obtained only in spring 
.anil early summer, is now produced 'by 
many dairymen straight through the sea- 
son. The .rune butter of a decade ago, 
that is, -was due to the presence of jiar- 
ticular bacteria, not present earlier in the. 
year, which have 'been captured and are 
now widely cultivated by expert bacter- 

What has been accomplished in the 
way of furnishing the proper bacteria 
for butter making points naturally to 
the linjie that the same thing may bo

The municipal authorities of Paris an 
making a ureat effort to give the busi-l 
n ,_ s streets of the city a more attractive 
appearance by men lid of artistic and 
original sienis for the shop fronts. 

In the olden times Paris wins famous 
for its street signs, which were often! 
very artistic. Many of til dm still linger I 
in old quarters. The best of them were] 
in hammered Iron, and sometimes 
gilded. These signs have been gradually 
disappearing, principally owing to the 
law restricting their use, with a view 
to the safety <<f those passing beneath 
them. But Parisians now realize that 
it would -be a mistake to let them vanish 
forever, and therefore they are to be 
encouraged. It. is easy to guard against: 
dMigeir, for a sign does not need to be 
LaTge or heavy to be artistic. 

Shop signs may not only be a pic- 
turesque feature of a street, but they 
are extremely useful to persons who 
look down a strange street in search of 
a particular kind of shop. 

The city of Paris offered a series of 
hand.-omo prizes for the best signs, and 
organized an exhibition of them. The | 
proposed signs were exhibited in the 
Salle-Saint-.lean of the Hotel ,le Ville. 
The best artists of France were among 
the competitors. XI. .lean I. eon (Jerome

a French pun. The word meant; "opti- 
cian," and as amiUKed sounds nearly!

it is interesting to note that a similar 
movement to revive oM street csigus has 
been started in London. During the 
coronal ion procession the bankers in 
Lombard street hung out as decorations 
reproductions of the signs of the old 
goldsmiths and jewellers, who were tho 
original bankers. They were the most 
effective decorations in the city, and it 
is proposed to preserve them iu perman-
